Rugby: Year 10 vs Latymer Upper
The game kicked off with FBS knowing it will be a hard one to win because they know how well drilled Latymer are, but FBS still knew that they have a chance and if they could defend well. The start of the game included a lot of Latymer pressing hard but FBS stood strong in their defensive line. Latymer went through the phases but FBS did not let them break through. Latymer found space through spreading it to their winger who ran well down the line, duly scoring with the try converted, Fulham down 7 points to 0. Fulham kicked off again and Latymer came back strongly, breaking the line quickly. FBS were not turned on conceding again. Shortly after, Fulham pressed high and forced a knock on which gave Fulham the first proper opportunity with the ball in hand. The scrum went down and ball was played out down the line to Fulham’s wingers. Jack pushed up with the ball and tried to break the line, unfortunately being pushed into touch. Fulham however, won the line out against the head, putting pressure on the Latymer’s defence, resulting in a high tackle on a Fulham, meaning a penalty was awarded to FBS. A quick tap released Dan, using his pace to get away from the latymer defence and diving over the try line right in front of the posts. James converted, 12-7. Game on.
The second half started with a Latymer kick off with Fulham immediately loose in possession, giving the ball away. Latymer pressed but Fulham but couldn’t break the Fulham defence right on their own try line. Latymer passed the ball along the line and find a gap out wide, through the line, registering another converted score. With the score now 19-7, the Fulham restart resulted in FBS losing all sense of organisation, conceding a further try almost straight from the catch. This trend continued with the eventual score 50-7, making Latymer Upper School deserved winners.
